Beaches, Sunscreen, Guacamole, and Pesos...

I've finally gotten a chance to upload our pictures, go through them, edit them, and now post them!  This week has been a little crazy...our flight got in at 12pm on Friday night, we left at 6:45am the next morning for a family reunion in Iowa, and then got back on Sunday night, (not quite) ready to start a whole new week!  I've been up to my ears in laundry and it's been a busy week so far!



Here's to beaches, sunscreen, (virgin) margaritas, Pacifico, guacamole, sunsets, taxis, and pesos...a peek into our week in Mexico.


Here's our resort...it was beautiful and everything we had hoped.  








Another of resort at sunset...so beautiful. Can you tell we didn't leave the resort very often?  We pretty much read by the pool or by the ocean all day, shared some guac' for lunch, then went out to dinner somewhere in town.  I was so tired by the end of the day, I usually fell asleep while Kyle watched basketball.  :)


 We loved the open-air taxis.  Only found in Mazatlan.  

Our hotel lobby. 

 Went to see the cliffdivers one day.  Pretty crazy.


Our room had a great view of the ocean.  We loved watching the sunset.




A pretty ocean picture near old-town Mazatlan.

Lena, this picture is for you since you helped me pick out my little romper.  :) 

 Dinner the first night at the resort.  I god Pad Thai (not your typical Mexican dish) and Kyle got seafood enchiladas.  The lemonade was so yummy...it was actually fresh-squeezed limeaid.  I could take another one of those right about now!  :)


 Coconuts!  I totally wanted one!!!


I do have a few more pictures of some yummy food we had I will post later. A couple other things coming up...Cajun-grilled shrimp with cheesy grits, pictures of my parent's NEW house (white kitchen included), and lots of more of Callie.  Stay tuned!

WOW! I cannot believe you guys went to Mazatlan! that's the beach our family always goes to (we are of mexican descent) and we LOVE going there. Of course looking at the picture of the "pulmonia" (open aired cabs) and the cliff divers are typical Mazatlan and it brought me so many memories.
Plus your pictures are amazing! glad you guys had fun!

Beautiful pictures Nealy! This looks like the perfect place for me and Andy to spend our 10-year anniversary next year! (This is Amanda, btw) :)
